6:32 am
>> well. not ideal. the front that brought in this stronger storms yesterday, that is still trying to clear out. it is having a tough time doing it. it is kind of stuck right now. what that means is we are stuck in the included right here, in philadelphia. even off to the south there are still a couple of showers that are out there. so it gets progressively better with time as well as, here's the same story for d.c. too but what you can expect here initially and perhaps even a shower here and there through the southern part of the area as we look at central and southern del marva we have a few showers at the moment and even through southern new jersey, you might need, to be flicking the windshield wipers once or twice. this isn't kind of day that requires an umbrella that front continues a slow trek south. 50 degrees temperature at airport. chillier with the clearer sky up at mount pocono at 39, and 48, continues to be the temperature in ac. we have in the seen too many from these values for last few hours since we have been on the air. as day progresses we can see
6:33 am
in philadelphia we will call it a partly sunny day. further north more sunshine you will see, further south the more cloud cover you will be stuck under and may end up with a shower out there as well, south of the philadelphia. eventually though, meisha is there more wet weather for all of us down the road and i'll tell you when to expect it coming up. >> thanks very much for that. good morning. happy wednesday to you if you are just waking up with us. what we're looking at, is the vine, looking at westbound side because we still have some flashes going on. the it is slowing you down on the far right side. it has been there for quite sometime and we are starting to get backups, residual effects because of that. for as long as that is out there and more vehicles that hit the roadways we will see major slow downs on the vine on the westbound side, pulled off to that right shoulder. so, causing some headaches for those trying to exit off the vine. an accident at i-95 south past cottman has got you hung up here. thing is it is not blocking any lanes but pulled off to the shoulder but we have gaper
6:34 am
delays plus we have volume levels to support this kind of a backup. i-95 south past cottman is pulled off to the shoulder. this is your backup shot leading up to cottman, it is very slow there. if you can avoid it, would i suggest doing so, if you can't just give yourself some extra time. remine are, delaware memorial bridge left lane is partially block make net as things heat up this morning and also burlington bristol bridge is closed overnight, it will be closed again tonight as it is opened new but will be closed again tonight, tacony palmyra bridge your best alternate when that is closed, brook, back over to you. thanks, a hit and run crash injures two philadelphia police officers in fairmount and sets off a bizarre chain of events. this is the end result at 15th and parish not far from here two officers in an unmarked pickup truck were struck by a dark sedan. that car sped off. a white car then pull up and when the driver got out two other men jumped in and stole
6:35 am
that car going the wrong way on 15th street. then they, crashed into a moving vehicle and a park car. police just want to speak with the witness right new who is in the cooperating. >> no, not really giving us any good information regarding the auto accident involving the police vehicle. he was just more concerned with himself when he got to the scene of broad and brown streets for some reason he was afraid and jumped out of his vehicle which doesn't make a whole lot of sense to us. so we will investigate and try to get the truth. >> both officers were taken to hahnemann hon, one of the officers had a concussion, other had neck and solder pain. right now police are looking for the driver of the dark sedan and the men who stole the white vehicle. well, turning to politics presidential can states head to indian at next prize in campaign 2016. >> both hillary clinton and donald trump gain momentum thanks to pennsylvania and delaware.
6:36 am
clinton cruised, to an easy win over bernie sanders 56 percent to 44. trump triumph in the keystone state getting more votes then ted cruz and john case being combine. clinton swept delaware getting 60 percent. but while trump was in the clear he was clear winner, excuse me in the g.o.p. race, kasich edged out cruz for second place. >> so what impact will these results of on who wins the nomination? >> bill rosenberg, political analyst and professor of political science at drexel university is back with us this morning to break down the results. good morning, bill. was pennsylvania key for trump. >> i would say that the way candidates described the elections is every super tuesday is super. last week we had new york and big victories and today, yesterday we had them in pennsylvania. what it has done is solidified the inevitable that donald trump and hillary clinton will be the nominees. >> here's where delegate race stand right new with his wins
6:37 am
last night trump has 937, cruz has 555, kasich has 147, it takes 1237 to get to the nomination. do you think trump has what it takes to secure the nomination at this point. >> i think it is probably inevitable he will win nomination and probably win it before they even go to cleveland. he had some very striking victories over the last two weeks and there is some very big elections coming up particularly in california, but also indiana. as a result i think he will go over the top without having to have a brokered convention. >> cruz and kasich are trying to split the next couple contests, and potential losses in delegates. my question is could this type of strategy work to prevent trump from getting delegates out right needed for nomination. >> what we have seen earlier is marco rubio tried the same tactic when he align himself with governor kasich, he said let me win florida and you can
6:38 am
win ohio. it ended up that rubio did in the win florida but kasich did win out in ohio. going forward though i think we have already seen major cracks in that alliance between kasich and cruz. while they say they are not going to direct their voters, they will only direct their super pacs with the subtle message that they are hoping cruz ill win indiana. it is unlikely to be successful. >> looking at democrats, hillary clinton came up big winning four out of five states but yet bernie sanders says he is still in the presidential race to win. what would he need to do to secure the nomination at this point. >> the reality is he has to come up with very big in the remaining primaries he's talking almost 70 percent and that is mathematically really not very realistic. the way we should look at this is at this point, bernie sanders is not going to drop out, just like hillary clinton did in the drop out in 2008.
6:39 am
in fact she didn't drop out, until the time of the convention in 2008. he is on a mission to basically as he puts it create a revolution and he he wants to continue to drum that message forward to move the democratic party in a direction that he sees which is more progressive. >> also, this is a real first, this these states have had such an impact on the presidential race, is what the significance of that. >> usually states like new jersey, pennsylvania and california don't matter that much because the candidates have already lock up the nomination. i think as we approach sort of the reality of today, they in effect really aren't going to make much difference going forward from this point because as i said, i think it is pretty much all decided. >> bill, thanks, for jim us this morning. >> have a good day. >> thanks, bill. as trump declared victory he claim hillary clinton was only doing well because she is a woman.
6:40 am
>> the reaction from the wife of new jersey governor chris christie has gone viral. >> well, i think only card she has is women's car. she has nothing else going. >> check this out marry pat christie made a eye roll that lit up twitter. this is second time christie's family has been focus during trump speech. back in march do remember the governor standing stone face behind trump during that primary night victory speech. stay with "eyewitness news", up to dayton campaign 2016, that includes coverage of the democratic national convention which, it is in philadelphia a, and in july. well, still ahead this morning if prince had a will in one can find it. and that is setting stage for a court fight over the singer's enormous assets, find out who could ultimately decide who gets prince millions. >> it the is just sock i love to do. >> this man's mission help cancer patients forget about their disease for a little while, how he is helping them say cancer who, in this weeks
